My First Blog


I would like to welcome you to this blog, and thank you for visiting.

Daniel1979 is the name I have been using for some time now when posting opinions to various newspaper websites and political blogs. Somewhere along the way I have developed something of a compulsion to check out certain opinion blogs as frequently as possible both to add my own comments, but also to see what other people have been commenting about.

I recently decided it might be a nice idea to have a try at hosting my own web page; and here it is. Thank goodness for Google Blogger for having created a tool to make it very easy to set up and manage such a website.

What can you expect to see on my blog? Unlike the newspapers and TV news websites it is very unlikely that you will find breaking news here; in fact unless this Blog develops a wide following, like Guido's Blog it is unlikely that I will be in a position to post any breaking news. However, it is my humble aim to post my own questions and opinions and allow those of you who are inclined to do so you opinions and reactions. These topics will largely focus on national and international politics. However, I would also like to occasionally post on other topics such as television, sport and culture.

As I have (for now) a full time job, posts may come in spurts... as such I will endeavour to leave a blank post periodically for general comments.

Please add this blog to your favourites, and when you are done here check out some of my favourite blog pages from the links at the side of this page.
